Cover for Pathways of utilization of D-amino acids in higher organisms.

Although an integral part of the peptidoglycan structure of bacteria, D-amino acids are ubiquitous in higher organisms by virtue of endogenous synthesis and symbiotic microbial activity. The occurrence of D-alanine, D-aspartate and D-glutamate in higher organisms is now well documented. Distinct...

Cover for Inter-organ fluxes of amino acids.

Plasma amino acid pools are regulated by production and disposal. Whereas essential amino acids are dependent on protein breakdown for their plasma flux, non-essential amino acids are produced de novo within the body. In many instances these production processes are encased in metabolic cycles,...

Cover for Toxicology of non-protein amino acids.

The appearance of a wide range of non-protein amino acids in foliage, fruits, seeds and root exudates is an important expression of secondary metabolism in higher plants. The ubiquitous distribution of these amino acids is exemplified by their presence in food and forage plants, as well as in...

Cover for Structural and functional properties of glutamate dehydrogenases.

Glutamate dehydrogenases are homooligomeric enzymes that catalyse the reversible oxidative deamination of glutamate to 2-oxoglutarate, thereby linking nitrogen metabolism and the tricarboxylic acid cycle. Four different classes of the enzyme are known in microbes that differ in size and cofactor...

Cover for Lysine biosynthesis in microorganisms.

Lysine is an essential amino acid that is synthesized in plants and microorganisms via two metabolic routes which evolved independently. Fungi and some archaeal species employ the intermediate α-aminoadipate to anabolize lysine. Bacteria and photosynthetic cohorts, in contrast, employ the...

Cover for Arginase and microbial pathogenesis in the lungs.

Strict regulation of pulmonary capillary barrier integrity is crucial for preventing capillary leak and ensuring optimal gaseous exchange at the alveolar-capillary interface. Bacterial infection of the lungs, as can be seen during severe pneumonia, can dramatically impair lung barrier function and...
